NHS is still the best in the world
Recently, there has been much publicised criticism of the standards of service received at local hospitals.
The NHS is reckoned by many to provide what are the finest medical services in the world, and a recent experience of mine encourages me to support that view.
Less than two weeks ago, while supporting an outdoor charity event, it was my misfortune to take ill and need medical attention.
An ambulance was called and, after 35 minutes' treatment by the paramedics, I was whisked off to Leicester Royal Infirmary.

From that moment to when I was discharged the following day, the service I received was exemplary and I have nothing but praise for all those who were part of it.
This is from the paramedics who crewed the ambulance, through the hospital reception staff to the ward staff, nurses, doctors and consultants – all were of an extremely cheerful and uplifting disposition and made my brief stay with them very comfortable.
So well done Ward 15, thank you and God bless you all.
Please don't anyone talk to me in derogatory terms about our NHS, because it just won't wash.

I think most people will agree that the populace of this country are basically civilised and law-abiding.
As murder is wrong, there must be a limit or line which must not be crossed, and that line must take the form of a uniformed police officer who represents the law of this land.
If a criminal crosses this line – as in the killing of two women police officers in Manchester – he or she must expect to forfeit any right at all to a place in civilised society by facing the ultimate penalty.
A person who commits this crime cannot lay any claim any sort of diminished responsibility when he intentionally arms himself with lethal weapons and deliberately lures two people to their deaths.
